The following video shows a particularly nasty encounter between the German police and ordinary citizens, who seem to have committed some COVID-related violation.
Nash Montana, who translated the video for subtitles, includes the following explanatory notes:
I think I figured out what is going on in the video: The couple must have had unauthorized visitors, and probably MASKLESS as well, during the Corona lockdown.
The cop is actually demanding that the woman call all of their relatives who just left the apartment, and tell them to return immediately! He says that if she doesn’t do that he will enter their apartment (he doesn’t say to “look around”, but I assume the threat is there).
It doesn’t say WHO called the police. I assume a nosy German “respect my authority” neighbor.
This video is really hard to watch. What occurs to me is that though these people are speaking in a foreign language — possibly a Slavic language — they seem to be taken completely by surprise by the readiness of the police to apply serious violence.

|00:13||Cop: Where are they now? Where are these people that were in this apartment?|
|00:16||Woman: Hello, we have a child. We have a small child; she cries nonstop.|
|00:19||Man: [unintelligible] let’s remain calm, OK?|
|00:22||[unintelligible] Stay calm, you too!|
|00:26||These people, they have to now…|
|00:29||They have already, they left the apartment already. —Then you have to…|
|00:32||you call them and tell them they have to come back. And I mean now!|
|00:35||You call them on the phone now, because if not,|
|00:38||I will enter this apartment now, I am telling you that now.|
|00:42||You call your relatives on the phone now,|
|00:45||or I will step inside this apartment now! —OK! OK.|
|00:48||And if your husband, boyfriend, tries to stop us, we will take him to the station!|
|00:51||Yes, yes, I will go with you, I will… —Stop! —Stop!|
|00:54||Hello, we have a small child, do you have children?|
|00:57||Yeah, I have a daughter. —You do? Then you should know how things are!|
|01:00||Why are you doing this?|
|01:09||Why are you doing this?|
|01:25||Hey! —What are you doing?|
|01:28||[unintelligible, child crying] —What are you doing?|
|01:31||What are you doing? —Stay calm! —You are two against one!|
|01:34||Hey! Stay calm!|
|01:38||Stop! Stop it now!|
|01:41||Right now! Right now!|
|01:44||Calm down! Stay down!|
|01:47||Calm down! [unintelligible] Stay calm! You calm down now!|
|01:50||[unintelligible] —You stay down now!|
|01:53||Do you understand me? [unintelligible]|
|01:56||Stay calm! [unintelligible]|
|01:59||Stay down! [unintelligible]|
|02:02||You will now be restrained!|
|02:05||Stay calm! —Stop it with this insanity now!|
|02:08||We will now restrain you! —Get off me! —Get on your stomach!|
|02:11||Turn around and get on your stomach! Lie on your stomach!|
|02:14||[unintelligible] —Turn over and lie on your stomach now! Lie on your stomach!|
|02:17||Please let my arm go… —Lie on your stomach!|
|02:20||[Woman talks to man in a different language.]|
|02:23||Lie on your stomach!|
